RECTANGLE PATTERN (TREND CONTINUATION)

FX:USDCHF   U.S. Dollar/Swiss Franc
171 1 14
The rectangle pattern is a trend continuation pattern. It is formed in trending markets
where there is an impulse move followed by a range of price consolidation which makes
the rectangle . Once the range breaks back into the direction of the trend you would
look for a 100% extention of the first inpulse move.

Conventional way to trade a bullish Rectangle pattern:

-----Breakout-----
(1) Wait for a clear rectangle to form.
(2) Buy a break of previous high. (Top of rectangle )
(3) Stop below the rectangles Low.
(4) Target is a 100% extension of the first impulse move.

-----PullBack-----
(1) Wait for a clear rectangle to form.
(2) Wait for price to break and close above previous high.
(3) Buy pullback at previous high. (Usually happens 1 candle after the break)
(4) Stop below the rectangles Low.
(5) Target is a 100% extension of the first impulse move.

Thanks for the post! That's a great pattern to trade!!

I'm looking for an indicator that can hopefully draw those "rectangles" ( or bounding boxes ) reasonably.. Surely not the most trivial thing to automated..
